Your wedding cake is one of the focal points of your reception. Each cake I make is skillfully made from scratch and is as delicious as it is dazzling. I work with you to create your unique cake that distinctly reflects you, the theme and style of your wedding, and tells your story.
I have been baking creatively for 10 years. It began with a cake decorating book my mom gave me, when I was planning my daughter's first birthday. The cake was a success. I was working in a very technical field, but now I had designed and constructed an edible structure. A new skill and passion were born. Over time, I gravitated towards a new profession, an Architecture of the Senses. After years of baking cakes for family and friends, and with experience in both architecture and engineering, I believed I had a solid background for a custom cake business. I launched Gateau in 2008, but I felt there was one thing missing - a background in pastry. I researched that field and enrolled in the Pastry School at the Le Cordon Bleu College in Scottsdale, Arizona. I was taught by some of the top pastry chefs in the business, and my baking skills and knowledge expanded exponentially. My technical and art background are invaluable to my work, as is my strong understanding of the science of baking.
All of our cakes, fillings and frostings are made from scratch. No hydrogenated fats, I use organic ingredients where available, unbleached and unbromated flour and aluminum free leaveners. You can taste the difference.

Our wedding cake was DELICIOUS. Lora was great to work with and very responsive. We did a box tasting to choose our flavor and ended up getting one of her beautiful non-custom cakes. Delivery also went off without a hitch. My mother ate 6 slices. Highly recommend!Sent on 05/31/2019

Lora and Gateau were a pleasure to work with for our wedding day. We had Gateau cake at another wedding, and were amazed by how delicious and moist it was. When our wedding venue also recommended Gateau, we sampled a few flavors and found our wedding cake! Lora was very responsive over email and communicative with our vision as well. One thing to keep in mind is on the day of the wedding, you really are not supervising the cake etc arriving, which I only saw at the reception. You really want someone you can trust, and Lora came highly recommended to me, and I would recommend her to anyone. I ate 3 pieces of the wedding cake and am not even a cake person :)Sent on 07/12/2019

Gateau makes custom wedding cakes, but they also have an economical line called Simply Sweet. We went with this option, as we wanted a simple one tier cake. The order process was very easy, and Gateau did a great job!Sent on 05/20/2019

Beautiful cakes and very kind staff. I've seen a LOT of cakes and I always recommend Gateau to my couples for superb taste and professionalism!
The choice of a baker for your wedding is a critical decision. The cake has to taste good and look good, both of which you will get from the talented staff at Gateau lead by Laura.
Gateau is an amazing artist! Not only are the cakes a true work of art....they are absolutely delicious! Love working with Gateau...class act all the way!!! Highly recommend!
